The first 3 seasons of Sunny were gold but there was a drop off, however there were some wonderful highs during season 4-7. I feel that Modern Fmaily has been more consistent.

The question is - Do you value consistency or the blazing brillinace of old Sunny that burned out too soon?

Well sadly, I don't think show can be brilliant for too long, the writers just eventually run out of gold. It happens to all the shows.

Yeah, I edited my post to say the first 3 were gold but there really were some super high points scattered over the rest of the seasons. But there were also some duds.

Sunny really goes for it and a lot of times they miss but when they hit it is wonderful. Modern Family alsways seems to strie the same note but never really goes for something different.

I enjoy both shows.

I feel like this answer is gonna go right down the demographic lines. If your male and under 35 probably Sunny. If not Modern Family. Don't think females watch Sunny at all (at least any I know). Modern family is good but Sunny when its good it is really good.

I'm right there on that cut line. I'm 34.

I voted Suny b/c the highs are just so much better than Mondern, but that is also a product of Modern being broadcast network show while Sunny is on FX which will let the writers take more chances.

That said, Modern has never come close to the hilarity of "Charlies Goes America All Over Everyboby's Ass", "Mac Bangs Dennis' Mom", "The Gang Gets Invincible", or "The Gang Solves The N Korea Situation"

Also gotta think- Sunny was unique. Modern Family took something which had already done, the mockumentary, and merely did it better than others (IMO).

When I was making this poll, I was trying to think of two 'modern' sitcoms that were on equal footing, but in hindsight- I should have pitted Sunny against Arrested Development.

Arrested wins for me. ( minus season 4 and the Charlize Theron storyline in season 3)

It's Always Sunny. The troll toll, Kitten Mittens, Rum ham, Frank tripping on acid, and more and more and more. I think the show has gotten BETTER as the season's have gone on. Probably my favorite American TV show.

Modern Family is ok at best. Sunny is unique and has an amazingly specific POV where through the prism of the show can offer a different and mostly darker take on modern issues.

Voted for Modern Family.
I tried to watch a couple of episodes of Sunny in Philidelphia it's first
season and I really didn't like the show at all. ... That said, Modern Family
has lost a lot of it's appeal to me as well after the first season. The show
was funny and lot's of potential, but the second season was "dry". OK in
spots, but it lost a lot.
